Achieve a Sculpted Jawline with KYBELLA®

KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to improve the appearance of submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin.” Submental fullness occurs when excess fat accumulates beneath the chin, creating the appearance of a fuller or heavier neck area.

KYBELLA® is composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat cells beneath the chin, KYBELLA® disrupts the cell membrane, causing the fat cells to be destroyed. The body then naturally processes and eliminates the destroyed fat cells over time. 

At your KYBELLA®  appointment, we will assess your submental fullness and discuss your aesthetic goals. Then determine whether KYBELLA® is an appropriate treatment option based on the medical history and needs. Then we will develop a personalized treatment plan that outlines the number of KYBELLA® sessions needed based on the specific condition and desired results. During the treatment session, the medical professional uses a fine needle to inject KYBELLA® directly into the targeted fat beneath the chin. The injections are administered strategically to achieve even and consistent results. KYBELLA® injections usually have minimal downtime. Some swelling, bruising, or discomfort at the injection site may occur, but these effects are generally temporary and resolve on their own. Over the following weeks to months, the body naturally processes and eliminates the destroyed fat cells. Gradually, the area beneath the chin becomes smoother and more contoured. Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve the desired outcome. For a full correction with a KYBELLA®, a client will generally require 2-4 sessions using  3-4 vials per session. Clients should wait 4-6 weeks between each session.
